BIRDLAND – Falcons coach Mike Smith is set to host a coaching clinic for all Georgia High School Association head football coaches on Friday, April 16 at the team’s facilities in Flowery Branch.
The clinic, which will be held from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., will include a tour of the football operation, dinner and specialized sessions with the coaches.
Smith, who used to recruit the Atlanta area as college coach, has found ways to give back to the high school coaches since being named the Falcons head coach.
Last December, Smith and the Falcons hosted a Salute to High School Football Luncheon for GHSA-affiliated head football coaches.
Last year’s coaches clinic was a success as more than 150 high school coaches attended. Smith stressed the importance of making a positive impact on the players.
